Abstract This manuscript reports a set of acceleration measurements in the frequency range from 0 to 50 kHz performed at the mixing chamber plate (2 axes) and the top flange (3 axes) of a cryogen-free dilution refrigerator. Various configurations of the support frame and coupling to the pulse tube compressor and motor have been tested, and the dominant contribution in the spectrum of vibrations is located, surprisingly, near 20 kHz. Finally, the efficiency of various precautions in suppressing… Expand

A 10 mK hermetic cell for eliminating parasitic heating in cryogen-free dilution refrigerators
Cryogen-free dilution refrigerators generally simplify low temperature research but some types of samples, including superconducting qubits and other nanoelectronic devices, are affected byExpand
Very Low Resistance Al/Cu Joints for Use at Cryogenic Temperatures
We present two different techniques for achieving low resistance ($<$20 n$\rm \Omega$) contacts between copper and aluminium at cryogenic temperatures. The best method is based on gold plating of theExpand


Vibration-induced electrical noise in a cryogen-free dilution refrigerator: Characterization, mitigation, and impact on qubit coherence.
This work characterize the effect of the pulse tube vibrations on an electron spin qubit device in this setup, and test the performance of different cables designed to diagnose and tackle the noise, and finds triboelectrics to be the dominant mechanism coupling the vibrations to the electrical signal.

Vibration analysis of cryocoolers
The vibrations of Gifford-McMahon (GM) and pulse-tube (PT) cryocoolers were measured and analyzed. The vibrations of the cold-stage and cold-head were measured separately to investigate theirExpand
Vibrations on pulse tube based Dry Dilution Refrigerators for low noise measurements
Abstract Dry Dilution Refrigerators (DDR) based on pulse tube cryo-coolers have started to replace Wet Dilution Refrigerators (WDR) due to the ease and low cost of operation. However these advantagesExpand
Observations on Thermal Coupling of Silicon Oscillators in Cryogen-Free Dilution Refrigerators
Silicon double-paddle oscillators (DPOs) have been successfully used for measuring the elastic properties of amorphous films down to 10 mK (see, e.g., Fefferman et al. in (J Low Temp Phys 187:654,Expand
